mctlaw attorney Pamela Levinson and paralegal Angeleah Childress learned recently that the funding request they helped submit for the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians was approved by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). The BIA is providing the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians Tribal Court with $237,401 for use in their tribal court program services. That’s $47,401 more than the BIA provided the Tribal Court last year.
This is a huge win for the Tribe. This funding means the Tribe will be able to pay for an administrator, two part-time judges, a prosecutor, a bailiff, a paralegal/deputy clerk, office supplies and office furnishings for another year.
“I would like to say WADO! (thank you) to mctlaw for all their hard work and dedication to the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians Tribal Court system in helping to obtain BIA funding for another year!” says Kristie Bradley, the Tribe’s Court Administrator.
The mctlaw Indian Law Group is proud to help the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians (UKB) and looks forward to helping UKB and tribes like UKB across the nation in the future.
